Our philosophy is to listen to you and your innermost thoughts and ideas and translate them into your personal retreat of living beautiful art.

Overall, Miriam’s River House Designs is a small but mighty company. We are family-owned and operated with extended family partners that share our philosophical interests. Our beloved Amish extended families are driven, along with us, to excellence and provide a love of giving our very best to everything we undertake. Beside our immediate partners, we have chosen affiliation with several quality artists, practitioners and companies that we feel excel in their given fields. We all find joy and satisfaction in what we do and create and there is gratitude in our hearts for each and every client.
